It may still seem like a long way off but the evenings are getting a little brighter, the sun is out a little bit more and before you know it the summer will be here again. So now is the perfect time to begin your summer preparations for your home. Here’s some of our favourite tips…
Perfect the garden
If you’ve got a nice outdoor space you’re probably the one who gets nominated to do all the summer BBQs, so get ahead of the game and get your garden looking great. Dust off the garden furniture, perhaps give it a lick of paint where needed or dry clean the chair cushions to get rid of the ‘winter’ smell. Why not put up some fairy lights to make the garden look that bit cosier.
Splash of colour
Replace the grey, winter cushions and throws with bright statement ones to give your home that summer feeling. The kitchen is a great place to start, add some brighter crockery to your collection to really wow your guests.
Brighten the room
On the cold, dark winter nights, our curtains are usually closed to keep the warmth in. But as the evenings get longer you’ll want to get as much daylight in as possible. Switch your thick winter curtains to light (maybe bright) summer ones, and make the most of those summer evenings.
Sort out your wardrobe
Prepare to put those big, bulky jumpers and boots away and re-introduce your summer wardrobe. The best thing is we can help you store your winter clothes until next time round!
